Following the announcement last July, a first look at Catherine Tate in new comedy Hard Cell has been released, as well as the launch date confirmed.
Hard Cell is a six-part limited comedy series created by and starring Catherine Tate. Tate plays multiple characters as a documentary crew follows the inmates and staff of HMP Woldsley capturing the penal system at its brutal humorous best.
Further casting includes Christian Brassington as Dean; Niky Wardley as Anastasia; Lorna Brown as Cal; Caroline Harding as Sal; Jola Olajide as Charlee; and Duncan Wisbey as Martin.
Executive producer Kristian Smith said: "We cannot wait to show audiences on Netflix the inside of HMP Woldsley, our fictional prison occupied by the fantastic creations of Catherine Tate. This series is funny and touching all at once, revealing what life might be like in a British women’s correctional facility."
Hard Cell lands Tuesday 12th April on Netflix.
